Cut larger side (top) flaps at an angle to create "triangles" as picture. I didn't use a template...just eyeballed it
Now on to the belt!
Add glue dots or adhesive of choice for the belts ends making sure NOT to adhere it to the box...we need it to slip off. Follow the following pictures.
Grab your embellishments for the belt of choice. Here I punched a blue star, red circle and white circle
Thank goodness for clear stamps and acrylics...you have a view of where you want then aligned. I'm not a Stamp-A-Majig user...lol.
Color in your image! Here I used Brilliant Blue, Real Red, More Mustard, & Blush Blossom. I used a white gel pen for the stars
Here is how I stacked my punches out...red circle, blue star, white with image. Then I attached them to the belt using glue dots.
The possibilities are endless. You can make these for Weddings, Baby Showers, or just for fun to give to friends and family. You can fill them with candies, embellishments for a crafter friend, you can even use these as jewelry boxes!!! You can even use ribbon instead of CS for the belt!
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial and hope you try it out! Holla at me if you make one so I can checkitout! ;) Thanks for stoppin' by!
